Recently acquired a '79 F150 in which I long-blocked a 302, there are no diagrams or decals on the truck listing applicable emissions equipment or vacuum line distribution diagrams and the manuals I have are generic covering many years of vehicles in very general terms. Can anyone supply me with the diagrams/list I need? Any assist appreciated.
I have been in the same distress as you my friend. I have a 300-6 on my '79 F-100 and (thanks to the past owner) it had no smog equipment and no vacuum diagram on the hood. Here's what you'll need to do. Go to you local Ford dealership (parts) and give them the VIN number off the truck - you should at least be able top get a new VECI label. Next go to the library and look up vacuum diagram - the dealer may be able to help. I have two different diagrams for you engine and year (not sure if they apply to your paticular truck or state), but let me know and I'll E-mail a scanned image for you. I also have a Helm shop amnual for all '79's. What are you trying to do?

Hi, would appreciate a scan of the federal rqrmnts, am trying to figure out what I'm:
A. supposed to have.
B. need to have.
C. how to hook it all up.
Florida is pretty lax on enforcement but some things do make a positive difference and gas milage is a concern. I use the truck for towing my horses and other work type things, i.e. trip to home depot, feed store etc. Also if you have a photo that shows which vacuum ports are which on motocraft 2150 would be helpful. Thanks for assist!!!
if Florida is laid back on emmissions, forget about the smog pump,EGR, etc, I would replace the motorcraft 2150 with a carter 625(thay have an adapter for spreadbore manifolds) and am very pleased with the increase in mileage/power
email me for vaccum diagram if you want to re-plumb it anyway
I'm in Victoria TX I'll need to know if your carb on the 302 is manual/electric choke. does it have EGR?? the EGR valve looks like an strange ashtray mounted on an arm coming from underneath your carb , you cant miss it.
give me the skinny on what you DO know , and Ill scan you the maps...I dont have a "master" map (like the one under hood) , what I do have is maps showing each individual piece of emission equipment and its proper location and wiring,adjustments etc....
i'm in the same boat as you with my 300 I-6. i don't need the emissions inspection for my state (minnesota) but do need it to get a sticker for my military location. it had no emissions stuff on it when i bought it and i've been trying to piece it together as best as i can figure out. if you can scan the emissions stuff you have, i would greatly appreciate it. thanks much

Sorry I haven't replied sooner. I need to install my scanner software. I should have it running this weekend. I'll try and send them off as soon as I can this weekend. School, work, and the truck have kept me busy!
I've got a 77 F250 400 EGR engine with 2150 carb and a box of emission/vacuum hoses and componets with no idea of how to plumb. It is non catalyst, no air pump and has PCV, and an EGR adapter which is capped. I have 1977 shop manuals from Ford which are no help and neither has the dealers around here. I've checked the local library to no avail, but still have a possibility at the central library in town.

We are going to start sniffing exhausts. Thanks and a salute goes to the fellow in Victoria
